Could have done without Phyllis Diller's unfunny jokes (there is a fast forward button!) but he had a television show for a while. Really good to watch the master in action - he makes it all look so simple!
These were the Liberace Shows that were filmed in London and aired here in the US on Tuesday nights on CBS during the Summer of 1969. The original shows were 1 hour long and in color. Liberace had numerous guest stars on them.
This 3 DVD set runs around 328 minutes and disc one and disc two are from those shows and are in COLOR!!!! Disc three is from his 1950's tv series and are in Black and White.
I LOVE the DVD's but was disappointed that they were not the entire shows. This set is just different segments from those wonderful shows. A time when TV was good and wholesome!!!
Dics one starts off with Liberace playing the song Lover. Then Phyllis Diller arrives. Phyllis and Liberace kid around and perform a duet together. Then there is a production number with Phyllis. Liberace then performs Tea for Two, a Listc Concerto, The Impossible Dream, Let Me Call You Sweetheart and The Last Time I Saw Paris.
Then Minnie Pearl arrives. They really camp it up and then Liberace plays Alley Cat. Minnie Pearl and Liberace then perform a hillbilly song together which is very funny.
Eve Arden and Eva Gabor are also on disc one along with more songs from Tchaikovsky to Gershwin to The Blue Danube and more!!!!
Disc two starts with Liberace performing the song L-O-V-E and then George Gobel arrives. They perform a silly duet and then do a production number together.
Liberace then plays some classical numbers. Then plays The Look of Love and Tiger Rag. Then Jack Benny arrives. Then Liberace performs Mack the Knife before he and Jack Benny do a very funny duet together.
Moonlight Sonata, How Insensitive, Boogie Woogie and People follow.
Liberace's Mother is one of the guests on these wonderful shows, so she in on this DVD also.
Liberace really shows his showmanship in the Spanish medley which starts off with Malaguena then goes into Cumana and then ends with El Cumbanchero. It's WILD FUN!!!!!!
I hope others enjoy these wonderful clips from the 60's. I easecially love that they are in color really showing off his flashy outfits.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review. I hope this helps.
